DESPITE a strong effort, South Hinksey’s cricketers were trounced for a third year in the fourth annual North Vs South Hinksey cricket match at the Oxford University Press (OUP) ground.
The southern villagers were bowled out for 85, while the northerners racked up 87 for nine at the Jordan Hill, north Oxford, ground.
Organiser Peter Rawcliffe said: “We had a lovely afternoon and it was a good match, no one was walking over anyone.”
North Hinksey skipper Chris Andrews said: “The match was very good-natured and played in good spirits, on a good afternoon. The sun shone down, birds sang and everybody played brilliantly.
“It was lovely weather and a great day and everybody put in tremendous effort. I think we might have a re-match later in the year.”
